FAQ:

 

I Lost my Mercury Cougar car keys, have no spare and need a replacement. How and where can I get a replacement key?

Mercury Cougar Car Keys Replacement

Mercury Cougar Car Keys Replacement

Generally speaking, you have three options:

  1. First, call an automotive locksmith that offers a mobile service for Mercury Cougar cars. We can help you with that.
  2. Second, tow the car to the dealer.
  3. Third, order a key online and have the dealer or locksmith cut and program (if necessary) it for you.

Furthermore, depends on the type of key you had and year e.g. remote, intelligent fob, push to start, transponder or regular key you may have different options about how to get a new key made.

What should I tell the locksmith or dealer when I call for service?

First, make sure you have the exact year, make and model. e.g. 2000 Mercury Cougar.

In addition, write down the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) of the car located at the left side of the dashboard near the mirror (Click here for more information). That would help the locksmith or dealer verifying the year, make and model of the car and the type of key you had.

Moreover, ask if you can come and pick up the key or the car has to be present. With older models, codes may not be available and therefore on-site service will be required to make a new key.

Alternatively, you can tow the car to the locksmith shop but that would be more expensive.

Finally, make sure you can show ownership of the car by having the necessary documents. The title, ID, insurance card etc.

Q: Mercury Cougar key replacement cost – How much does it cost to replace Mercury Cougar key without the original? What is the average price?

Price of cutting a new Mercury Cougar key may vary

Price of cutting a new Mercury Cougar key may vary

A: In short, to replace a Mercury Cougar key usually cost between $85-$390. It depends on a few factors:

  1. Type of key
  2. The year manufactured
  3. Time of day & your location
  4. Where you get a key replacement (Dealer, automotive locksmith, online etc.)
  5. Availability of code to cut a new key
  6. Original ignition or not

The type of key you had and the year the car was manufactured are maybe the most important factors (chip, intelligent fob, “push to start”, remote, regular “non-transponder” key). The newer the car is, the better security features the key had and therefore you can expect to pay more than $250 for a replacement key. Click here to see this model type of key you had for a more accurate price and information.

In addition, it depends where you get a key replacement. The dealer, automotive locksmith or get it online. Click here to get a more detailed explanation.

The dealer usually charges about 10%-15% less than a locksmith would for the key. However, most chances you will have to tow the car there to program the new key or remote and therefore the total price is usually higher.

Furthermore, consider that if you are looking to have a locksmith to come out and make you a new key outside regular business hours, the price may go up.

Finally, in case your ignition cylinder was changed before (usually with older cars), that probably means that the code for the key may not be useful and the key will have to be either cut manually by a locksmith or to change the ignition again which in this case the dealer can’t be of help.

Q: Can I get Mercury Cougar key replacement by VIN?

A: That depends on the year of your car and type of key you had.

The VIN allows the dealer or an automotive locksmith the option to access the key code on file, i.e. to cut you a replacement key by code which makes the process very fast and easy. There are however two things to consider:

  1. For Mercury Cougar vehicles older than 10 years: There are no codes available. Therefore, an automotive locksmith is your only option to get a replacement key.
  2. For Mercury Cougar vehicles equipped with transponder system and/or remote/ intelligent key/ fob key: Codes are available. However, programming is necessary and therefore you will have to either tow the car to the dealer or have an automotive locksmith come and program the key on site.
